Escapism, our first ever publication, was born out of a feeling of exhaustion after an incessantly busy 2017. Relishing in the downtime of the break, we contemplated the concept of escapism.
We wondered, do we work hard and live for the moments spent away or do we design our lives to negate the need for escape all together, enjoying the small and frequent opportunities for pleasure?
Posing the theme of escapism to our peers and colleagues, we planned to gather a series of creative interpretations of what it means to escape.
The outcome? A zine brimming with beautiful photography and introspective pieces written by some immensely creative people and companies.
1st row: Ghost Wares, Nicolle Sullivan of Cultiver Linen, Julia Busuttil Nishimura of Ostro.
2nd row: Meghan Plowman, Elise Heslop of Plyroom, Rosie Fea.
3rd row: Jacqui Lewis of The Broad Place, Domini Marshall, Forma Studio.
4th row: Robyn Daly, Sophie van der Drift, Places We Swim.
Over the coming weeks we look forward to sharing the stories and thoughtful content from these contributors.
In recognition of escapism, allow yourself a minute to pour over the zine.
Perhaps it will inspire you to escape a little more this year (however that may be).
